I finished shaving the unused holes in my radiator support. Next, I'm going to re-shape the rear section. This is what it looks like now - there are a bunch of unused clips and dents. Some of them are for structural support, and some of them are to add clearance for parts that I've deleted.
The ends also have a really big gap where they meet the frame rail. It doesn't need to be a tight fit, but I'm going to re-shape this area so it fits a little closer to the body and looks a little better.
Here is the plan for the shape. I plan on squaring it off with straight, clean lines instead of the lumpy factory edge.
Here are some closer pictures of the missing holes. I deleted all of the hood release cable holes, I'm going to have to fabricate something I can reach through the grille.
The bluing is to check for low spots. The piece is so wrinkly and dented from the factory, I have a lot of hammering and puttying to do! These underhood stampings just don't meet the same quality standards as exterior (visible) body panel stampings.
